Jack Harper was born in Málaga, and he is 18 years old. He plays as a striker for Real Madrid's Juvenil A, and he's shocked the world of football during Real Madrid's debut in the UEFA Youth league.

As you vcan see, he's not only a good striker, but he knows how to link up with his teammates as well. Considering he's still 18 years old, Harper still has a lot to learn, and time will tell if he has the quality to play for the first team. One way or another, it's always good and exciting to see young prospects playing so well. His goal and also one scored by Borja Mayoral allowed Real Madrid to get a 2-0 against Basel just the day after the first team beat 5-1 the senior Basel squad. If Harper and company keep developing this way, Ancelotti might soon be able to trust these young guns.
